LeBron James’ mom congratulated her son on another historic accomplishment on Tuesday night.

With a triple-double performance against the Oklahoma City Thunder, James crossed off the only team in the NBA that he had not recorded a triple-double against. It’s a feat that no other player in league history has ever accomplished.

The elder James referred to the Lakers superstar as the G.O.A.T. (greatest of all time), a title that the younger James has strived to achieve over the course of his illustrious career. In response, the younger James called his mom the G.O.A.T. as well for how she raised him.

“I really don’t know what to think about it,” the Lakers star said after the game. “I just think it’s a pretty cool stat to know, and I’m glad it happened in a win.”

The three-time NBA champion registered 25 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists to lead the Lakers to their 12th win in 14 games this season. It’s the team’s fifth straight victory, which came after completing a perfect four-game homestand.

The 34-year-old James ranks fifth on the all-time triple-doubles list with 86, just behind Lakers assistant coach Jason Kidd (107), Magic Johnson (138), Russell Westbrook (141) and Oscar Robertson (181).
